Teflon will be ground off in short order - it isn't durable enough for that kind of use - unless the ground is coated in teflon.

Getting up the driveway at that point will be a challenge.

It seems you may have found possibly the best solution with the ramps - they are heavy, but they aren't expensive and you don't risk permanent damage to your coach or having to fuss with parts that aren't up to the task.

Alas, I think you might be right. It is disappointing. I was hopeful the skid wheels would have actually been used out there but it appears maybe not.

maybe use the skid wheels FOR the ramps
